    Hello Tony,
    I live in Denton, TX and this past weekend I used the directions you posted a couple of years ago to build a single box step on my patio. My 84 year old mother and I THANK YOU! My husband was so excited that he suggested we could build a deck over our cracked concrete patio. Our patio is 14ft deep and 19ft wide. Can you give me suggestions/directions on the number of boards needed to basically duplicate the step on a much larger scale? I know I’ll have to level the “sleepers” but I am unsure as to how to space them and the length of deck boards needed. Any information you can provide would be most appreciated! Thank you!!! 4/10/17 S. Jernigan

    We very pleased that you found the information on our site helpful and we appreciate the feedback.
    Typically deck floor joists are spaced at 16 inch on center intervals when using decking boards for the floor.
    You should definitely check with your local inspections department to determine if building over your patio is appropriate, as well as to procure any permits required for your area.
